Chamonix has now designed the 810 Alpinist, in response to our customer demands. The Alpinist is an ultralight, horizontal-only view camera.
The Alpinist is mostly suited for the Landscape photographer although portrait mode can be achieved by tilting the tripod head. Give the minimum light weight of less than 2,5kg this can easily be achieved.
The first batch of the 810 Alpinist sold out in just one month; the second production run is underway and we expect to have some cameras by June 2018. Some portrait only cameras will be included in this batch.
